Guardianships and Conservatorships

If an adult lacks capacity to manage his or her own affairs due to a disability, mental illness, dementia, or other infirmity, the court may appoint a legal guardian to make decisions about the protected person’s living arrangements and medical care. If the protected person has assets that need to be protected, the court may appoint a conservator to manage his or her financial affairs. We assist families through the process of petitioning the court for the appointment of legal guardians and conservators.
